The Owners

Dynamic entrepreneur duo Mr Friedrich-Wilhelm Dauphin and the late Elke Dauphin made their mark in the international corporate market with their sophisticated office furniture and have been passionate about South Africa for many decades.

After purchasing the estate in 1999 the Dauphins consulted with Gundel and Emil Sogor, two talented German artists, to transform the estate, introducing striking works of art that add character to the historic Cape estate.

The Dauphins re-introduced vines to complement the existing herbs and fruits, allowing Allée Bleue to fulfill its long-hidden potential. A new state-of-the-art wine cellar was constructed and with the arrival of winemaker Van Zyl du Toit in 2009, Allée Bleue once again became home to world-class wine.

The Dauphin family are passionate about ensuring Allée Bleue is the ultimate destination in the South Africa.
